Abstract:

Fomesafen is widely used as herbicide for weed control. Fomesafen have both foliar and soil activity. It mostly control broadleaves. Fomesafen is labeled for postemergence applications to soybeans, peanuts, and rice. Although bronzing or burning of soybean leaf tissue is evident after application, yield is rarely affected. The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of repeated exposure of Fomesafen (Herbicide) by oral gavage method on the blood biochemistry of female wistar rats. The study highlights the various changes in biochemical parameters of female wistar rats over repeated exposure by Fomesafen by oral route through gavage. Under the conditions of this study, the repeated oral administration of ‘Fomesafen technical’ in Female wistar rats at the dosage level of 50 mg/kg b.wt. for consecutive 90 days did not induce any observable toxic effects, alteration in blood biochemistry parameters when compared to its corresponding control group of animals.
